Sean Snyder responds to K-State coaching rumors spawned by tweet, ‘no secret messages’

Kansas State special teams coordinator Sean Snyder’s tweet from Friday night might not be hinting at any staff changes for the Wildcats after all.

Snyder responded on Saturday morning that his tweet “thanking” his father and Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder and that he will “carry it forward” was nothing more than a simple statement with “no secret messages.”

Rumors have circulated that Snyder, 78, may name his son as the next head coach of Kansas State football once his retirement arrives. Brett McMurphy reported in November that Kansas State had reached a deal for former Oregon defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt to become the Wildcats’ head coach in 2018, but that Snyder had vetoed the deal as he wanted Sean to become his successor.

Bill Snyder has coached at Kansas State for 25 seasons. He first served in the position from 1989-2005, only to make a comeback in 2009. He has not left since.

Sean Snyder played at Kansas State from 1992-1994 and has been on the coaching staff ever since. He served as an assistant from 1994-2010 before being named special teams coordinator before the 2011 season.
